    Excellent move. Yet its a plan for now. I hope this is implemented soon.

    No more innocent deaths due to someone else's fault.


    Cheers!!!

    Bad move. An army's job is to keep the boundaries secure and not to hand out driving licenses. If you think the army guys are incorruptible, then you are in for a nasty surprise.
    I don't see what advantages an army man could bring to a very civilian enterprise like issuing of driving licenses.

    It's not a job of Army. Someone is trying to keep army busy into odd jobs.

    It's proving how incompetent and corrupted are our institutes. Better involve BDR into it, they seem useless.



    Anyway,

    Solution:

    1) If license giving authority BRTA fails in preventing corruption and giving license to right candidates then sack all the corrupted people from BRTA and replace with new honest people. Lots of jobless people are there who are willing to serve the nation with honesty.

    2) Or set one honest army person as DG/head of BRTA, no need to involve 1000 armies here.

    So, the Army is the sole custodians of morals?!

    Why not have the army running the country instead of this bickering façade of a democracy that is held at ransom by the two political female leaders?

    Is there such a lack of competent entities? Or is it that the Army guys are considered absolutely incorruptible?

    Somehow it appears to be going the Pakistan way where the Army is allowed to run its own private businesses.

    Pretty bad for a precedence.

    In addition to it, its probably corruption as well. Accidents have become common recent days. Army probably can run it well and is less-prone to corruption than the current authority. Off course they are not incorruptible.

    About business, our army already has been doing business for quite sometime. The footsteps of PA were followed in that matter, though i do not agree in doing full fledged business.


    Cheers!!!

    I'd beg to differ:
    8 cops closed over Aminbazar killings

    ::: Star Weekend Magazine :::

    The other day, I came across a "No u-turn" sign over a divider while driving on the airport highway. There was traffic police. And yet, vehicles openly took u-turns.

    Bangladesh Police can generally manage basic traffic. However, it is terribly underfunded. Even our domestic helps earn more than police officers.

    I wish we had a strong police force. Sadly, due to politics and whims of corrupt and powerful people, it is an ineffective force. That partly explains the bad law & order situation in the country.

    Road accidents are very common. In fact, much of the patients in hospitals suffer from accident-related injuries. Many drivers drive with fake licenses or no license at all. People get killed!

    So, is it feasible for the army to take up this important responsibility? Unfortunately yes.

    There are important reasons why the military is a separate organization - a state within a state. A soldier's ultimate purpose is to defend the nation, and vindicate enemies of the state - both foreign and domestic.
